How old is too old to teach English in Asia? If you started your search for information about teaching abroad in China, Korea, Taiwan or maybe Japan then you probably found out there was some preference for young teachers in their 20's or 30's.
But why is that?
Well, based on my experience I'd say a lot of it is about appearance, culture, and your visa.
It seems like most countries in Asia or sometimes schools have visa cut offs from about 55 to age 70. But even if your 70 or older there are still some options - at least one that I will tell you about later.
First we'll look at the situation in East Asia, talk about the advantages (yes, there are advantages), visas, and you'll get some tips for finding work if you are 55 or 60+.
